January 29, 2019 06:09PM
quickly approaching Steve Cishek Jersey , the Tampa Bay Rays will have a decision to make on ace Chris Archer.Ken Rosenthal of MLB on Fox reported on Saturday that Archer is drawing "significant interest" on the trade market:FOX Sports: MLB MLBONFOXWhat needs to happen for the Rays to trade ace Chris Archer?Ken_Rosenthal explains 8sI0tpynhMThe 29-year-old right-hander figures to be one of the top starting pitchers available at this year's deadline.Archer has a career earned run average of 3.68 and a 1.227 WHIP in seven years in the big leagues. Entering 2018, he had piled up 32-plus starts and 194-plus innings in four straight years. Not only that, but he is under club control through the 2021 season and is owed no more than $8.25 million at any point in his current contract.When he's on top of his game, that's an absolute bargain.However, it's been a tough year for him. He is 3-4 with a 4.29 ERA and a 1.381 WHIP in 15 starts Drew Smyly Jersey , striking out 86 batters in 84 innings. His hits per nine innings (9.3) are up, his walks per nine are up (3.1) and his strikeouts per nine (9.2) are down. At his current pace, his earned run average will increase for the fourth consecutive campaign.Then again, he missed more than a month recently because of an abdominal strain. He has allowed four earned runs in his first two outings back, spanning 7.2 innings. His last outing saw him strike out seven in 4.1 innings of work.Trading Archer would be the latest part of the rebuild process for Tampa Bay. This past offseason http://www.redsfanproshop.com/authentic-drew-storen-jersey , the team got rid of third baseman Evan Longoria, closer Brad Boxberger, outfielder Corey Dickerson and pitcher Jake Odorizzi, with the first three being former All-Stars.At 49-48, the Rays are already 19 games back in the American League East and 9.5 back in the wild-card race. They could further the rebuild process by conducting a bidding war Scott Feldman Jersey , but if they don't get blown away by an offer, they can always hold on to the right-hander for a reasonable price.

Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports that the 59-year-old is expected to leave.The 59-year-old Scioscia has managed the Angels since 2000 and is the longest-tenured manager in the majors. The Angels are 55-57 as their series wraps up in Cleveland.GETTING HOT IN WASHINGTONNationals star Bryce Harper might be hobbled for a bit after getting hit by a curveball in the right knee Saturday night. Harper struggled initially to put weight on the leg, but eventually made his way to first base. A half-inning later, he was replaced in right field by Adam Eaton. Washington reliever Ryan Madson hit Reds star Joey Votto with a pitch later, and an infuriated Votto yelled at Madson throughout the rest of the inning. That tension might spill over when the teams conclude their four-game series.OSUNA RETURNSReliever Robert Osuna joins the Astros Eugenio Suarez Jersey , ending his 75-game suspension for violating Major League Baseball’s domestic violence policy. The World Series champs acquired the 2017 All-Star from Toronto on July 31 for Ken Giles in a swap of closers. The 23-year-old Osuna had a 2.93 ERA in 15 games for the Blue Jays this season when he was penalized.Osuna is expected to talk to the team before the game at Dodger Stadium. The right-hander has been working out with Double-A Corpus Christi.RUNAWAY RED SOXDavid Price and the Red Sox try for a surprising sweep of the Yankees when they wrap a four-game series at Fenway Park. With Aaron Judge and Gary Sanchez on the disabled list, New York’s bats have been bottled up by Boston’s pitchers, with Rick Porcello and Nathan Eovaldi throwing gems the past two games.Price (11-6, 3.97) hopes to follow suit and make up for a miserable outing the last time he faced the Yankees, when he allowed a career-worst five homers in an 11-1 loss July 1. Masahiro Tanaka (9-2 http://www.redsfanproshop.com/authentic-jose-peraza-jersey , 3.84) starts the night game for the Yankees, who have lost a season-high four in a row.Boston is 8 1/2 games ahead of New York for the AL East. The teams play six more times in September.A HISTORY OF SUCCESSWith the Braves in a tight race atop the NL East, right-hander Julio Teheran (8-7) tries to stifle the Mets again when he starts the finale of a four-game series at Citi Field. Teheran is 9-6 with a 2.33 ERA in his career against New York and has permitted just two runs on 11 hits in 21 innings (0.86 ERA) vs. the Mets this season. Rookie righty Corey Oswalt (1-2) pitches for New York in place of injured Steven Matz. Oswalt beat San Diego in his last major league start July 25 for his first career win.
